Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: NAB AFL Rising Star award nominee 2013
Brownlow Medal: Career votes 1
Junior Club: Cheltenham (Vic)/ Sandringham U18
Draft History:
2010 17-year-old access selection (Gold Coast)

Tom Nicholls hasn’t played an AFL match since 2016, with both injury and the strong form of number one ruckman Jarrod Witts contributing to his absence at the highest level. In 2018, Nicholls went down with a shoulder injury in round one of the NEAFL which sidelined him long-term. He managed to return for the final match of the year after undergoing an extensive rehab program.

Entering 2019, Nicholls has a big year ahead as he looks to prove he still belongs as an AFL ruckman. As one of the club’s few remaining foundation players, Nicholls brings plenty to the club off the field but needs to string together some form on the field in the NEAFL. An unconventional ruckman who excels after the tap with second and third efforts, Nicholls has built his endurance through pre-season and will be hoping for an injury-free season.
